"Appropriate" must be one of my favorite words, because my girl has recently taken to telling me about things that aren't appropriate. I gather I use that phrase more than I realize.

You're so right, that when we focus on praising Him it's hard to find time to speak things that aren't appropriate or fitting.

P.S. - "It just ain't fitting" is from Gone with the Wind. Mammy said it...but I don't remember the scene.


oh, I needed this reminder today. Thanks, dearie.


One of the most awesome things of doing the same devotions on the same days is verification that I am "right on" with what I am supposed to get from it. I, too, focused on the same exact thing this morning. In fact, my prayer this entire week has been that He puts a guard on my mouth AND heart so that the only things I speak, or even THINK are words that are encouraging, lovely, fruitful, praising, and braggin' on Him.

Anything else...ZIP IT, SUSAN!
